Winds

Global winds are by six major wind belts,this wind is from pole to equator.
Global convection currents the equator and poles produce giant convection currents in the atmosphere.
The Coriolanus Effect if earth does not rotate,global Indy would blow in a straight line from poles toward the equator.
Global Wind Belts circle the earth between the wind belts are calm areas where air is rising or falling.
Near the equator the sun heats the surface strongly and warm air rises creating low pressure with the wind.
Warm air rises at the equator divides and flows both north and south.
When cold air over the horse latitudes sinks it produces a region of high pressure.
